Story

Hello, I am Sakshi Bhuse. I am 18 years old and will be studying Computer Science through Vijaybhoomi University in Karjat, Maharashtra.
          Before I ask you for a favor, let me tell you my story. I was  born and brought up in Pune, Maharashtra. I belong to a financially weak family. My father has a tentative job as he repairs LEDs, LCDs, etc. My mother works at Avasara Academy as a Bus Monitor. My total family income is about 20,000 INR. There are 4 people in the family, including me. Till grade 6, I was in a government school called PCMC English Medium School. 
           After 6th grade, I earned a scholarship that allowed me to study at Avasara Academy (a Cambridge Board School) where I completed my grade 12 in the Science stream (PCM). While at Avasara I got a chance to explore so many new things and got to learn them, like playing instruments, singing, drama, dance, leadership skills. It allowed and pushed me to develop my skills not only academically, but also intellectually.
           During COVID-19, my mother had to go through a surgery. Due to COVID-19, none of the government hospitals were available, so we had to do the surgery in a private hospital which cost around 90,000 INR, including all the injections, medications, tests, and the surgery. Due to this all the savings were gone into the surgery and the hospital bill. As the government school were me and my brother studied, works only till grade 8, my brother has to go to a private school. He needs a lot money for his fees, books and stationary, extra fees for co-curiculars, etc.
            While I got 100% scolarship, including tution and room and board, in Vijaybhoomi University, I still cover the cost for laptop and stationary. Asking my family for a laptop is difficult, as there are no savings and the income goes into my brother's education and running the household. Therefore, I have started this campaign to raise funds for my laptop.
            I am thinking of buying a Dell Inspiron 14, which costs around 65,000 INR.

As my course is Computer Science, I need a laptop with a good processor and softwares, and this is the appropriate laptop for my further course. Your contribution will help me get into college and study further.
           Please help either by contributing or by sharing the link with people you know would wish to contribute.
           Thank you so much in advance for your contribution. This is going to help me a lot and is going to give me a chance to get into such a good college.

Please Note- I have added 5000 INR extra, because I am not sure about the price fluctuation. Furthermore, Milaap takes 3% of the contribution.

Below is the letter of acceptance from Vijaybhoomi.
